Hi! Welcome to my first post. I’m so happy to see you. My name is Terri Molina and I would be the shy one of the group. (yeah I hear your guffaws and see the eye rolls…but it’s true.)
I’m really excited to be a part of Romancing the Genres, Judith and Sarah have done an awesome job with the place and I’m looking forward to interacting with you all each month.
A bit about me, cuz that’s why you’re here, right? ;-) I’m a mix of Mexican (my mother) and Honduran (my father) and I’m originally from SE Texas--and here's a trivia question for you-- my town’s claim to fame is it’s the hometown of Janis Joplin (and for you sports fans, former Dallas Cowboy head coach, Jimmy Johnson)--can you name the town? Anyway, I grew up with six brothers and sisters and a town full of aunts, uncles and cousins…who are the inspirations for my books. I write a variety of sub-genres, from contemporary to suspense to mainstream…sometimes they’ll even contains elements of the supernatural. The common link in my stories is that they each take place in Texas, mostly the Rio Grande Valley because my main characters are Hispanic.
After I graduated high school I lived a bit of a nomadic life, moving to various states/towns before returning back to Texas, then I met my husband, a Coast Guard Petty Officer, and did the nomadic life again for ten years. Although I didn’t really mind because I got to be a stay-at-home mom to our four children. We thought we had settled down in Texas when he retired but his new job moved us to southeast Arizona and we’re enjoying the wonderful weather and great hair-days!
So, that’s kinda me in a nutshell. If you’d like to know more, feel free to drop by my website. You can also find me at my blog Behind Brown Eyes.
